The OCZ Vertex LE

The LE didn't ship with a desktop adapter bracket, but for this price you really can't complain too much about that. The LE is a 2.5" drive that fits in a notebook or can be mounted in your desktop if it has a 2.5" HDD slot. If not, then you can purchase an adapter bracket pretty cheap these days.

On the back we found the serial number and model number. The four under drive mounting points are where they should be so this drive will easily mount to your drive sled.

The case is made out of aluminum and the side mounting points are where they should be.

On the back side we found the SATA power and data connectors where they should be.

I always found the OCZ labeled controller in the LE interesting. When this drive was released I think SandForce was thinking about staying low key and letting the drive manufacturers put their own labels on all of the controllers. Thankfully that was later reconsidered.

The Vertex LE uses Intel 34nm NAND flash. This is a big selling point for this drive since most modern SF-1200 controlled drives use 25nm flash that writes data slower when used with this controller.

There are sixteen flash chips total - eight on each side.

What's better than one drive? At this price, doubling up is certainly on option.
